"We are very excited to have LifeVac become part of the ERTSS mission to save lives," said Arthur Lih, Founder and CEO of LifeVac. "Having an established network of expert trainers demonstrating how to use LifeVac safely and effectively will help leverage our efforts to spread LifeVac's message that choking deaths can be prevented."
